It’s been a tough week for Woodinville as an intense snow storm transitioned into an ice storm causing the region to come to a near standstill. As temperatures slowly rise Friday, thawing the ice and snow, Patch wants to know what areas are still without power.

There are still pockets of Woodinville without power, even as the temperatures warm up and melt the snow that caused most of the outages. In many cases around Woodinville, the outages were caused by tees falling on the power lines, or the weight of the ice on a line causing it to break.

Still, Puget Sound Energy reports there are 1,959 customers without power Friday morning, Jan. 20. For those Woodinville residents living just over the line in Snohomish County, the public utility district says 16,000 customers with power as of 9 a.m., mostly in the north and east areas of the county.

Both PSE and SNPUD websites remind people not to approach a downed power line; the line can still produce enough electricity to prove fatal to anyone who touches it. If you see a downed line, call PSE at 1-888-225-5773 and SNPUD at 425-783-1001.

Let the community know in the comments section below what areas are still without power.

No power still at NE 158th in the Cottage Lake area. I'm currently at work in Redmond charging up flashlight batteries and electronics. My lineman friend at PSE whose been working in the Woodinville area said that we are on a hard to access circuit with only about 5000 customers on it so he said not to expect any power probably til the end of the weekend.

Thanks Tony! It seems downtown Woodinville has power, Balance Yoga and Oasis Spa just Facebooked that both businesses are open. We've got power in the 212th/216th area of unincorporated Woodinville.

So far, so good on the lower part of Hollywood Hill. We've had a few flickers over the last couple of days, but no outages yet.

Now I'm just trying to figure out what to do. My wife is out of town in Dallas (she made it out Thursday) so it's me, a two year old, a dog and the cat. I'm hoping one of our friends with power will be able to take us in.

The Shell Station at 15606 NE Woodinville-Duvall Road, is having computer problems so is only accepting cash.

A check of all gas stations in downtown and along Woodinvile-Duvall found they all are open and have gas. However, no one answered the phone out at the Shell station on Paradise Lake Road by the 522.

No power in Laurel Hills neighborhood (just south of Wdv-Duvall Road at 160th Ave NE. Two big trees blocking 160th Ave NE by Lake Leota so streets are closed.
